IAM has been serving moving industry from years with useful insight reports, seminars and presentations. If you’re in moving industry, you would always find something interesting in each event they organize. In a recent international event held at New Orleans on October 24, 2016, we got the opportunity to meet IAM’s President Mr. Terry R. Head the man behind IAM’s success and witnessed his modest yet witty personality. Behind his humble behavior and mildly sarcastic nature, you’ll find a vast sea of knowledge having different tips for International Moving Companies and managers that are engaged into moving business.
Representing We Move, Mr. Taarek Javeeid (General Manager We Move) attended the 54th IAM Annual Meeting and he was quite “moved” from everyone’s friendly behavior and the tendency to share few words about their business experiences. We observed few things from this mega event in moving industry that are essential to adopt for all international moving companies in order to grow big and improve service quality. And here they are!
ADOPT NETWORKING HABIT:
What we learned from this amazing event, held by International Association of Movers (IAM), is that networking is one of your strongest arsenals to boost your business reach across the globe. Make carrying visiting cards with you a permanent habit so when you meet someone, you’d have something to build a communication bridge on the go. It might look a formal activity that we often do in professional life but mark my words it would pay you off in surprising way as it did in our case and helped us to grow internationally.
KEEP AN EYE ON FUTURE CHANGES:
For success, and new moving projects of course, you need to be able to see where the industry is going? What major changes are going to hit the moving industry and what you can do to turn it into an opportunity beforehand? And events like 54th IAM Annual Meeting are like your best option to make future predictions about your moving company. The main event was full of such opportunities where we learned so many new trends that are influencing the moving industry at international level.
LEARN ABOUT DIFFERENT BUSINESS CULTURES:
It’s true that during working hours, most moving executives rely on phone calls and emails but that’s not sufficient to learn what other businesses are doing in their workspace (or warehouse)? During the 54th IAM Annual Meeting, we met so many great people from moving industry and shared their knowledge and business experiences in odd situations. And it really helped us to plan our strategy in a similar situation. If you want to be in successful International Moving Companies, you need to reach out likeminded people and see how they handle things in different situations.
